I love water…. I love all water…. the ocean is particularly fascinating and complex to watch as the waves change. Water is, at times, peaceful. On the other hand, water can be dangerous as during storms, when waterspouts form. What I would describe as “angry water” is noted during downbursts or microbursts, when squalls or gusts form from sharp shifts in wind direction. I love to visit the waves after a storm.
Along our journey to gratitude, let’s experiment today with sight and sound, versus reading the printed text, or viewing static photos. All of you will find your joy through a variety of meaningful methods, particular to you. In the USA, most people live inland, away from the ocean. Some of you see beautiful mountains, some see the Great Plains, or lakes, rivers, and streams. Many live in densely populated cities with tall buildings and little light.
All of the places in which you spend your time are special, unique, memorable, and important to you.
